Letter from the Principal

Thank you for visiting our school. SIDES is one of the largest and most comprehensive DL schools in British Columbia, serving thousands of students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, including adult learners.  We are privileged to have a staff of dedicated professionals who share one goal – to provide our students with educational options and ensure their learning success through a combination of high-quality, interactive online courses.

One of the most important factors in any DL course is the relationship between the student and the teacher of that course.  This relationship is quite unique to each student, depending on his or her needs and preferences; while some students wish to be quite independent and to work on their own with little personal support beyond assessment and feedback on assignments, others want more contact and support from their teachers.  Our seventy-five dedicated and experienced staff members continuously reflect upon the learning activities and how we can improve our respective programs.

I feel privileged to be part of the SIDES team and to contribute to the continued growth and improvement of this exciting and innovative educational option for BC students. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions related to your or your child’s educational options here at SIDES.

And, please join us this fall as we celebrate our 25th year as an innovative leader of distributed learning in BC.

Kevin White, Principal
